Guests:

William Odom, retired General and former Director of the National Security Agency

Thomas Barnett, former professor and Senior Strategic Researcher at the U.S. Naval War College, author of "The Pentagon's New Map";
Ambassador Feisal al-Istrabadi, Iraq's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations
